    Well here it is. After two years of anticipation. More to come as soon as the UPS guy gets here. Let me know what you think.

    Bakflip cover fits good.

    Slimline raingaurds fit in channel and are very low profile. some people who rode with me didn't even know they were on until they got in the truck.

    Still getting used to entune. I like it but think it has way more potential. The abilities are a little limited, hopefully a software update can make it a little more useful.

    You can see I added the tube steps and skid plate and front window tint as well as the Compustar remote start and alarm.

    Love the truck so far and have been getting pretty decent MPG. I have been using 91 Octane and was able to get 22.6 MPG on the freeway and offroad from Shell gas. With Loves Truck stop the gas was the worst even at 91 Octane. Living in Nebraska, Ethonol enriched gas is prevelent and makes the MPG go way down. With 2500 miles in almost 3 weeks I can say the best gas so far was Shell 91 Octane.

    I got about 2 inches in the rear and two inches in the front. It fits ha ha ha. I have to double and tripple check before I close the garage, but I'm getting the hang of it. The backup camera is really helpful when getting that close to the wall.

    Anybody know any tricks with Entune? I have been using it a lot and find it helpfull but lacking to utilize it's full potential. You can't search Bing by voice, only the navigation database which is not as filled with info as Bing. I sure hope there are some useful updates to make the non HDD version (What Tacomas get) more useful. I was told by the dealer I may have to pay for the updates which pissed me off, but they said the nav update and Entune update would be one price which is helpful, but still a little more than I expected. Still nobody knows for sure because there are no updates for ours yet...Hope we can root or jailbreak this thing somehow.

    Currently trying to decide on the Pop n lock or the dynolock for the tailgate. Also the Auto or the keyed. Anybody have any preferances?

    Well I got a Pop N' Lock auto tailgate lock and a AFE dry filter but want that 3" lift. If I get the lift I need the tires and that goes both ways if I get the tires but it's hard justifying the tire purchase when they are still good. Someday I guess.
